Prince Oysterdate Rotor Self-Winding Ref. 7966

A very handsome Tudor “Small Rose” Prince, Oysterdate, Model Ref. 7966, dates to circa 1959.

Case and Crown

The watch comes in a stainless steel Rolex Oyster signed case, with a screw in back and a smooth polished bezel. The inside of the back has the model number 7966, which is repeated and matches the number between the lugs at 12 o’clock, with the serial number 286***, between the lugs at 6 o’clock. It also has the Rolex signed screw in crown, which is typical of Oyster cased watches by both Tudor and Rolex.

The case, bezel and crown are in excellent condition with only some very minor blemishes visible through a loupe.

Dial, Hands and Glass

The watch has a lovely Tudor signed, original, bright-silvered dial with a Cyclops magnified date at 3 o’clock. Applied, bevelled, steel baton hour markers with, luminous dots at the tips and a double baton at 12 o’clock.

Stainless steel dagger style hands with the hour and minute hands having luminous inlays that have aged and coloured beautifully to match the luminous dots! All of which have gone a delicious caramel colour.

The dial, hands and glass are in superb condition with the hands just showing some very minor patina that is only visible through a loupe. The plexi-glass was recently replaced when the watch was serviced and cleaned.


This Tudor uses the ETA base calibre 2484 rotor self-winding movement which, is known for being made to a very high standard to begin with but is then taken to the Tudor level and finished to a superior standard and is therefore an excellent movement.

The watch is running very strongly and keeping excellent time as it has just come back from our watchmakers after a complete overhaul. So will be despatched to you with our written 12 months warranty for additional peace of mind.


The watch is shown on a brand new black leather Hirsch Lizard band with steel pin buckle.
